A Look Back at Mother's Day Flowers

Two week's ago, I went home for mother's day and bought and planted some flowers for my mom. It's pretty much a tradition in my family. We buy flowering plants for mom and we plant them in the yard. I much prefer giving plants to giving fresh cut flowers because they last so much longer! And if you buy a flowering perennial, they bloom year after year. It's a gift that keeps on giving! This year, I bought her these pretty begonias. How insanely beautiful is this deep yellow color?
I also bought her some mini dahlias. I just loved these deep orange and red colors. So pretty!
My mom's dogwood tree is also blooming right now. I love the color!
Over 10 years ago, we bought my mom a peony bush. Year after year, it blooms a spectacular show of flowers! I picked one to bring home. How pretty is this?  My mom loves the bush, whenever it blooms she says, it reminds her of that mother's day.
Here is a view of the bloom 2 days later. The scent is amazing. Peonies are definitely my favorite flowers. I just love them! They definitely are show stoppers! Just gorgeous!

  1. Buying your mom plants is a lot smarter than giving cut flowers. I wish I had learned this lesson when my mom was still around. But it's great to see others being so thoughtful of the environment on Mother's Day.


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
